Britney Spears

VERY Close

To Closing Vegas Deal

1/13/2013 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0111_las_vegas_britney_Spears_articleBritney Spears' team has almost locked an enormously lucrative deal which will make her a fortune in return for appearing in Las Vegas ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Britney is seriously considering picking up stakes and making her residency Las Vegas -- something just made easier after her split with fiance Jason Trawick.  She's been negotiating with one of the Caesar group properties to appear in a Celine Dion-type show.

Sources connected to the negotiations tell us ... from Brit's standpoint, "The deal is a go. There are several stipulations that could throw a monkey wrench in the deal, but it's basically done."

One of the outstanding issues -- exactly what Britney will be doing.  There's back-and-forth over whether she will just perform on stage at a big theater multiple nights a week, or whether she will also make appearances at functions in the hotels, nightclubs and pool day clubs.

Our sources say the money being negotiated is "astronomical" -- more than Celine's $100 mil a year.

Yeah, you go, Britney girl. As Harvey said on TMZ, and it was actually very funny, that she's more successful than his gang of so-called "writers" assembled in the room. Harvey, y'all aren't even on the same planet as this girl. I'm just sorry that her personal life has been so hard for her. I sincerely believe Britney when she said she really wants to be a housewife, that she loves vacuuming and taking care of the house, domestic things. I hope she finds a really good man to be her partner in life and allow her to blossom in all the directions she longs for.

This is ridiculous. How in the heck is she gonna do a "Celine Dion-type" show? For one thing, she can't sing. For another, the type show she does/did isn't gonna work in Vegas. The people who go to Vegas aren't gonna pay $100 (at least, probably) to see someone who lip-syncs and prances (not dances) around a stage.

I guess now and days you can have zero talent and make it right America? Britney has the sexual attraction and that meow voice that makes execs wet and horny. Wasn't that $14 million she made with Simon enough? She has 2 boys. Why does she want to take them to sin city and live? Britney will relaps, and what do drugs and die. Then her ex loser fat ass Federline will get the boys. BRITNEY STAY HOME BE A FULL TIME MOTHER!

And further more she can't sing. Excellent producers, and hit makers that are helping her make millions. She can never go back and be that bubble gum chewing Lousiana chick with hay up her ass- all I remember y'all is her bald, with that damn umbrella- YIKES! Tipsy!

Enough of the Britney stories that don't tell us anything different from what you reported two days ago. What is Britney getting the Kardashian story quota for 2013 from you TMZ? C'mon

Britney Spears is not emotionally equipped to work a Vegas act. She's also simply not talented enough to pull it off. I would bet this is what led to her broken engagement. The fiancé, who is a talent manager knows she's not up to it and advised against it, but somehow Spears got it in her head that she can do it. She will come close to making it work. I know people love to see a train wreck, but spare me this one.

Looks like I have yet another reason NOT to go to Las Vegas. It's not the top reason, which would be I like to keep my money, but it is in the top 3. Celine Dion being #2.
